When and Where: The Barclays Premier League match from Ewood Park kicks-off at 3 p.m. ET. Live coverage of the game will be on the Fox Soccer Channel. The clash can also be viewed online later in the day via FoxSoccer2Go.
Preview: Despite the prospect of an FA Cup semi-final on the horizon this weekend and with, in theory, nothing to play for in the Premier League, Liverpool cannot afford to take their match against Blackburn lightly.
A woeful run of just one win in nine league games has pushed the club into crisis mode as they face up to the prospect of their lowest league finish in almost half a century.
As well as the pressure on the club as a whole for the team's league form to improve before the end of the campaign, regardless of any cup success, it should also be imperative for manager Kenny Dalglish's future that Liverpool provides some sense of hope for next season.
The situation for Liverpool's opponents on Tuesday is much more straight-forward; Blackburn need every point they can get to try and drag themselves to safety at the foot of the table.
Seven points out of nine to kick-off March appeared as though it might be enough to provide the impetus Blackburn needed to get clear of the drop zone. But having followed that run up with three consecutive defeats, Steve Kean's side find themselves back in the bottom three.
Team News: Forward Anthony Modeste, who was sent off after coming on as a substitute against West Brom will miss the clash with Liverpool through suspension. Martin Olsson will face a late assessment on a shoulder injury he picked up on Saturday.
Daniel Agger, who returned as a substitute last time out against Aston Villa, is expected to make his first start after over a month out with a fractured rib. The Denmark international should replace Jamie Carragher.
Dalglish has said that he will consider making changes to his lineup with his side having played on Saturday and with an FA Cup Final with Everton to come on Saturday.
Prediction: Liverpool find themselves in a conundrum of wanting to focus on the FA Cup, yet needing victories in the league to get the confidence of the players back, not to mention the faith of the fans and perhaps most importantly the club's hierarchy.
Knowing that every point is crucial for survival, Blackburn will be scrapping for their lives and have shown that they have the ability to get results. Blackburn's form at Ewood Park has been fairly encouraging of late, while Liverpool have lost four on the bounce away from home.
Steve Kean could well pour more misery on his fellow Glaswegian Kenny Dalglish and in turn take his own club a big step forward in their quest to stay in the Premier League.
